We've been going here for years now and I still consider this the best pastrami in LA and perhaps the world! They have a full menu, but I have never had anything other the pastrami and fries. They still have table top juke boxes that work and two very nice patios with fire pits. They only take cash, so come... More

I have a good friend that lives in Culver City and when I visited she brought me here. I've never been super enthusiastic about hamburgers but this place just blew me away. For starters, it's well kept and very clean. I liked the atmosphere of the place. The staff was very pleasant. The burger menu was absolutely incredible. You start... More

Excellent pastrami sandwiches but remember to bring your appetite. Corned Beef sandwich is excellent as well with the house made pickles. My daughter likes the charbroiled hot dogs and the Chili is good but that is all I have had from the menu. I keep going back between the pastrami or Corned Beef sandwiches but I am sure the whole...

I've been eating here since I lived in SoCal the 70s & 80s especially late night around the firepit with my friends!! Since then I've lived and traveled all across the country but always go out of my way to eat at Johnnie's any time I'm in SoCal. Just up Sepulveda from the airport (skip the 405 freeway). Parking very... More

I never give fives. So, there's that. The basic pastrami sandwich is AWESOME. As fate would have it, I was leafing through LA Mag's top cheap eats and came upon Johnnie's, which I pass everyday but never thought much about. Good News: It was on my way to work and an hour later I was ordering. Bad News: I was... More

Johnnie's is an institution. Seems to have been in business at the same place off Sepulveda near Culver City forever. Super casual and a bit retro. Some of the tables have a little coin op jukebox, and there is an outdoor patio with fire ring. But you don't go to Johnnie's for the atmosphere! You go for some of the... More

Delicious sandwich, great environment. This is one of those local gems that locals like to share. If you like meat and love pastrami, get their classic sandwich. Also, if you love pickles ask for extra pickles on the table while you wait for your food.
